As their album artwork suggests, Dai & the Ramblers are now an extraordinary music making machine. The band's second album, Bon Bon, was recorded across a series of live sessions at Rupert Gilletts studio in Walthamstow, East London. What emerges is an album that is sweet, yet flavoured with enough rough edges to capture the raw energy of their live shows. The sophomore album kicks off where their debut Duw Duw left off, in typically rambunctious and swampy fashion, panning out to reveal a band that has evolved impressively over a hard-gigging couple of years, equally at home playing refined folk-pop, NOLA infused soul, jazz & country. Squeezing out more juice than would seem possible from a simple quartet line-up, the band have carved out their own sigature sound: wailing double-stop fiddle, thumping rockabilly double bass and sweet harmony vocals. Dai Price's refreshingly honest and crystal-clear songwriting is a highlight, with the interplay between the musicians seeming telepathic at points. Spirited, unfussy and superbly wrought, Dai & The Ramblers Bon Bon album stakes Dai & The Ramblers claim to being one of the most engaging and orginla acts to emerge from London'd Roots music scene in recent years. Songwriter and singer Dai Price comes from Newport in South Wales, and previously worked with psychedelic cumbia outfit Los Chinches. Bassist Rupert Gillett also performs with the London Klezmer Quartet and produces records at The Cabin studio in Walthamstow. Sheffield-born Alan Dunn plays piano and accordion, and has worked with folk legends such as Loudon Wainright III and Fairport Convention's Richard Thompson. South African fiddler Bob Loveday has performed and recorded with artists as varied as Van Morrison, Jeff Beck, The Penguin Cafe Orchestra and Paul McCartney.

Janice Long (BBC Radio 2) "A joyous romp... will raise your spirits and gladden your heart" Michael Farley (Americana UK) WATCH DAI & THE RAMBLERS:
